Missouri Rural Survey 

The second Missouri Rural Survey is currently underway; its purpose is to solicit input from Missouri residents, business owners, and elected officials on the issues they believe are important in sustaining local communities and building a strong local economy.  The survey is jointly sponsored by the Missouri Rural Development Partners, Missouri Department of Economic Development's Office of Rural Development, MU Division of Applied Social Sciences (DASS) and MU Extension.  The results will be used by each agency to help guide their programming so they can better address challenges facing Missouri‚Äôs rural communities.
